Kerry Katona is keen to bag a role in 'Coronation Street'.
The reality TV star thinks she's got what it takes to make it in the ITV1 soap, and sees herself "at home" pulling pints in Weatherfield's legendary Rovers Return pub.
She told The Sun newspaper: "Imagine it, leopard print jacket, cigarette in me gob, 'All right love, lager and lime?' I'd be right at home.
"People don't realise how much acting I've done. I was in a comedy drama 'Showbands' which was only shown in Ireland and obviously there's the Iceland adverts."
Meanwhile, Nigel Havers looks set to make a shock return to the cobbles of 'Coronation Street', reprising his former role as dashing male escort Lewis Archer.
However, he receives a far from warm welcome from Deirdre Barlow (Anne Kirkbride), who punches him in the face as soon as she sees the charming con man.
In scenes set to be screened on the ITV1 soap next month, Lewis even tries to convince heartbroken Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) - who was shocked to find out about his secret life as an escort - and her daughter Gail McIntyre (Helen Worth) that he is his own twin brother.
The Daily Star newspaper quotes him as saying: "I'm Lewis' twin. We're always mistaken for each other."
